be gentle when you leave

be gentle when you leave

for i have taken roots in you

when you’re ready, and i’m not,

to settle in the new arm that awaits you

be gentle

for i, too, will be searching

for my roots to settle on

when it’s time to leave, look me in the eye

and tell me, gently, that i did love
